Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: Les dialectes du malgache
3 – 6 juin 2014
Université d’Antsiranana (Madagascar)

Le projet malgacho-canadien sur la microvariation dialectale du malgache annonce un colloque sur le thème « les dialectes du malgache ».

Selon Ethnologue (http://www.ethnologue.com/language/mlg), il y a onze dialectes du malgache, mais ce nombre peut varier. Il y a une riche tradition d’études linguistiques de ces dialectes, surtout en ce qui concerne le lexique et les systèmes phonétiques. Notre projet vise en particulier la syntaxe et la morphologie et propose une étude de la microvariation entre les dialectes, basée sur les enquêtes de terrain. Cependant, le colloque a le but plus large de l’étude de tous les aspects linguistiques des dialectes.
